SOURCE: Q9550 With Acer EQ35M MOBO
It is very likely that you simply do not have the right BIOS setup for the new processor. You will likely have to flash all your bios to get the new processor to both be recognized and to be able to recognize components on the motherboard. That is quite a jump in technology and it may be that the motherboard simply will not support the new processor period. In that case, be VERY careful buying your new board and make sure it specifically supports your processor. Sorry I could not be more help!

In most cases like this it means that the motherboard just can't handle the new processor. There should be a beep chart in your motherboard documentation that will tell you what the beeps mean. For example, one set will mean that the RAM is not there whereas another might say I don't think I have a processor. Often upgrading the processor requires extensive reflashing of your BIOS to support the processor IF the motherboard can even do it. Always read very carefully to see what processors your motherboard will support. Depending on your RAM, you might even have issues with the RAM. Sorry for all the bad news.
